AHRA Phoenix 1971 - Bee Line
Footage from the AHRA race at Bee Line (Phoenix) in 1971 Below commentary copied from Dragzine.com Slingshot Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Pro Stockers, Modified Production, Super Stockers, a young and curvy Linda Vaughn; it's all there. But perhaps the most interesting element captured and one that drag racing historians will pick up on right away is the presence of "Big Daddy" Don Garlits' Swamp Rat XIV. Although not the first rear engine dragster by any means, it undoubtedly ushered in the rear engine movement that led to the Top Fuel cars of today, and it's the footage of Garlits debuting and winning in the car at Pomona in 1971 that will forever live in infamy. But, as the AHRA Winternationals at Beeline took place in late January -- prior to the NHRA Winternationals -- what you're witnessing is the actual debut of the Swamp Rat XIV at Beeline.

Bill Bagshaw's NHRA Pro Stock "Red Light Bandit" 1970 Hemi Challenger
This 1970 Hemi Challenger was owned and raced by Bill Bagshaw in NHRA Pro Stock drag racing from 1970 to 1973. The car made its debut in 1970 at the NHRA U.S. Nationals, and won "Best Engineered" at the event. It was featured in the November 1970 issue of Hot Rod magazine. John Gastman of Roanoke Motors Chrysler/Dodge in Roanoke, IL owns the Red Light Bandit. He purchased it from a private owner as part of a package deal back in 1994. In January, 2011, Gastman called on Bucky Hess, and his son Travis Hess, at Bucky's Ltd in Martinsburg, WV to restore this historic race car. Bill Bagshaw, the original owner and racer, provided an enormous amount of information to Gastman and Bucky during the restoration of the Challenger. Bagshaw became part of the restoration team when he agreed to rebuild the Red Light Bandit's 426 Hemi motor at Ron Shaver's Racing Engines in Torrance, CA. Using pictures from magazine articles and build pics, Bucky's fabricator, Cole McAllister, expertly returned the body to 1970 condition. The talented artist Nelson Grimes re-created the lettering to "as raced" appearance, using both gold leaf and white gold leaf materials. The final product is stunning.
